Just be you

I entered this post March 14th and am just putting it out there.

“This morning, I’ve been feeling quite edgy like something wanted to come out; and all of a sudden I’m filled with this energy  to play with abandon! I think I just had an epiphany… Words have power… play with abandon, no judgement, just be you, trust yourself, – it’s very indescribable at the moment.  I’m on fire and I’m bursting at the seams.  I am fabulous!  Since this morning I have been painting and finished this one which I called “JBY” (Just be you).”

It was a very good day.

What can I say…I have been sad, unhappy, depressed for a few months and I can now say I am on my way back up.  Getting to this point I am taking medications, seeing my physician and therapist, being with my husband and daughter (who have been very supportive and patient with me), walking, talking to friends and most importantly creating art.  I have somehow not been taking the time and forgetting to take care of me.  It makes me think of when the airlines do that emergency blurb at the beginning of every flight they say that to get your oxygen first before you can help your child.  Weird huh.

Anyway I have some photos of sunrises from our home to share with you.  Here is one. Enjoy and have a good day.

My site title

I’ve gone through many site titles to define myself and what I am about and it wasn’t easy.  When I first started this particulary site, I thought “my art-see space” sounded good to me but I did not feel right about it.  It took me another week of soul searching when I found it in “art be true art be free”.  This speaks to my soul and grounds me to truth and being honest about myself and my art; about being free of any restrictions and judgement placed by me or others.  To truly be free to play in my creative space.

What is this space?

A place to share my thoughts, art, photos, ideas and and whatever else.  I have started a blog previously (www.agem-agemartinezartspot.blogspot.ca)  but have not been very good at keeping it up-to-date.  I found I was wasting a lot of time trying to figure out the how-tos on posting, uploading, etc.  So to make it more complicated…I decided to have my own website.  How crazy is that.
